The Canford Community joined together to remember the fallen in whole school services, curriculum study and displays.
A Level and Pre-U Results 2021
Canfordians have received their A Level and Pre-U results this morning, and after an unprecedented and difficult year can now look forward to the exciting next stage of their lives, whether that be university, apprenticeships or the world of work. Our school community celebrates the individual and encourages every pupil to follow his or her chosen path. This is once again reflected in the range of institutions and courses our pupils have opted for.
We are delighted that all seven pupils holding Oxbridge offers confirmed their places for courses in Engineering, History and French, Chemistry, English and Medicine, alongside a choral scholarship to Cambridge, with Canfordians also securing places at the highly competitive Medical Schools, and to top institutions across the UK. Chosen destinations include Durham, Bristol, Exeter, Edinburgh, Loughborough, Nottingham, Imperial College London, UCL and Cardiff. Internationally, Canfordians are holding offers to US universities in Rhode Island, Montana, New York, Pennsylvania, Boston and New Jersey and to Nagoya in Japan.
Courses selected in traditional single academic subjects are complemented this year by a wide variety of more vocational courses at university including Mechanical Engineering, Law, Psychology, International Relations, Criminology, Marketing, Agriculture, Neuroscience and Accounting. Drama, Art History and Music are all represented among creative arts university courses alongside Art and Design Foundations at destinations including Central St Martin’s and the Arts University, Bournemouth.
Headmaster Ben Vessey commented:
Pupils across the country have had a turbulent Sixth Form experience as a result of Covid-19, culminating in internal assessments replacing the examinations they expected to take when they began their A Level and Pre-U courses. It has been an extremely challenging time for both pupils and staff, and today we celebrate this year group and commend the efforts and approach of every single member of it. I am very proud of the way in which this cohort has faced the situation, demonstrating the courageous attitude, humble ambition, purposeful engagement and gracious leadership which are the core values and hallmarks of a Canfordian. I am also extremely grateful to all our teaching staff who have displayed the same values and worked so hard to support every pupil.”
